World Cup 2022 Qatar

World Cup 2022 Qatar: Which European countries can qualify this week?

Denmark could also book their place this week, though England must wait for the next international break to secure theirs.

With three games – at most – left for European teams in World Cup qualifying, BBC Sport looks at what can happen this week.

We also look at the home nations’ situations.

Denmark (and Scotland)

Denmark – who beat Moldova 4-0 on Saturday – will qualify for the World Cup if they win their home game against Austria on Tuesday (19:45 BST).

They can afford to drop points if they match Scotland’s result against the Faroe Islands.

Scotland can book a play-off place if they win two of their final three games. They could even do so on Tuesday if they win and Austria and Israel (at home to Moldova) both lose.

Belgium (and Wales)

Wales’ 1-0 win in Estonia on Monday means Roberto Martinez’s Belgium have not yet confirmed their place in Qatar.

Wales would need to win their last two games – and hope Belgium lost both of theirs – to finish top, but the runners-up spot seems more likely. That is a straight fight with the Czech Republic.

Robert Page’s side have a good chance of qualifying for the play-offs through last year’s Nations League groups even if they do not finish in the top two.
